What speech stuck out to you the most at the 2018 Oscars?

Get Out writer-director Jordan Peele became the first black writer to win best original screenplay at the Oscars for the mind-bending horror hit. The Late Late Show with James Corden producer Ben Winston captured this glorious moment of pure exuberance after Peele's name was announced. "But I think it's quite clear with the work that Ava [Duvernay] is doing, that Ryan [Coogler] is doing, F. Gary Gray, Barry [Jenkins], that this is a very special time". "I'll never forget a single one of them". And hopefully those same people are ready for Key and Peele's Gremlins 3.

Peele wrote and directed Get Out, which received high praise when it came out in February 2017, and that esteem carried over through to Oscar Sunday the following year.

He added, "I am so proud to be at the beginning of a movement where the best films in every genre are being bought by my fellow black directors".

Peele told The Hollywood Reporter that he wouldn't be against the idea of a Get Out franchise, saying, "I will definitely, seriously consider it".

"It was a cathartic thing, I wouldn't describe it as fun", said Peele.

The video highlighted Greta Gerwig, the fifth woman to ever be nominated for best director, Yance Ford, the first transgender nominee for "Strong Island", Dee Rees, whose "Mudbound" scored a historic cinematographer nomination and the Pakistan-born Kumail Nanjiani, nominated for "The Big Sick". It was the impactful horror film's only win of the night. As a little kid I lived in the projects and you're the people I watched, you're the people that made me want to be an actor.

Key and Peele were the creators of the aptly titled sketch comedy series that ran on Comedy Central for five seasons, from 2012 to 2015.

Peele's award was the only one for Get Out, as it lost in the other three categories it was nominated for: Best Actor, Best Director, Best Picture.

Peele was a surprise victor at the otherwise predictable award ceremony. Daniela Vega, the Chilean star of best foreign language film, A Fantastic Woman, became the first openly transgender person to present at the Oscars.
